Dana White is once again out banging the drum for the latest season of the Ultimate Fighter. Here he is singing TUF’s praises to MMA Weekly:
“Season 9 was (expletive) awesome. It’s the craziest season ever,” said White. “First of all, it has the best fights, the best fights ever in The Ultimate Fighter history.”
Now if that sounds familiar, it’s because it is. Here’s Uncle Fester talking season 8:
M&F: Finally, what do you think fans can expect this season on TUF?
DW: I can tell you honestly, fans can expect to see the creation of what I think will be the next Anderson Silva, but at 155 pounds, and probably one of the best seasons we’ve ever done as far as reality television.
And here he is on season 7:
TUF7 : Dana White says they’re shaking the format up and people are gonna be blown away by next season. He repeats this mantra several times before saying “And I’m not just hyping this up”.
I’m sure we have the exact same song and dance going back all the way to Season 4, and probably before then too. But at least with seasons 1 to 3 you don’t have to be a gigantic fucking liar when you’re trying to sell them.
